It’s only 54 days until the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo 2022 will gather thousands of ambitious offroad motorcycle riders from all over the world at the massive stage of the Styrian Erzberg in the heart of Austria. Preparations for the World Xtreme Enduro Supreme, which will also be part of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship for the first time, are well on their way. After a 2-year break due to COVID-19, the 26th issue of the world’s unique motorcycle offroad festival is fervently awaited by competitors and fans.

Get yourself one of the last race entries

“To race the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo should be on top of the bucket list of every ambitious Enduro rider.” That’s how motorsports icon and Wings-for-Life founder Heinz Kinigadner sums up the significance of Red Bull Erzbergrodeo. Offroad athletes can now fulfill their dreams and secure themselves one of the much sought-after starting spots for 2022.

Red Bull Erzbergrodeo Mastermind Karl Katoch explains why there are additional starting spots available for the first time in the events long history: “Due to the COVID-19 situation we had to narrow the starting grid down to 1200 riders last year. Now that the situation in Austria and Europe has significantly relaxed, we are able to return to the full maximum of 1500 competitors. The Red Bull Erzbergrodeo has all lights put on green, and we are looking forward to a mighty showing of the motorcycle offroad racing family at our comeback after 2 years of break.”

New racetracks, spectacular side events and extended spectator areas

„The Erzberg has changed its face a lot over the past two years, so we have added some new parts of the compound to our racetracks. The MITAS Rocket Ride will get an all-new, extremely spectacular layout for this year. BLAKLÄDER Iron Road Prologue remains the familiar combination of high-speed offroad racing and perfect choice of lines, but we’ve added some fresh parts of the ore mining traces. Sunday’s Red Bull Erzbergrodeo will be a mix of legendary classics and lots of new sections, a unique challenge providing Extreme Enduro at the highest level.”, Red Bull Erzbergrodeo Mastermind Karl Katoch describes the novelties of the 2022 race formats.

The spectacular action continues even apart from the racetracks. The AKRAPOVIC ONE-ON-ONE rider presentation, the all-new GASGAS TRIAL XTREME CHALLENGE and the notorious rider parties at the EGGER beer tent will once again turn the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo Arena into the pulsing epicentre of international motorcycle offroad racing during the 4 days long event.

The most breathtaking parts of the racetracks will see extended spectator areas in 2022, which can be reached comfortably by using the free-of-charge shuttle-bus-service on site. “Both the MITAS Rocket Ride and Red Bull Erzbergrodeo will have new spectator areas which offer an extremely close experience of the racing action. Especially on Sunday, riders will need the full support of their fans and we will make sure that they’ll get it loud and direct!”, says Red Bull Erzbergrodeo head of organisation Mark Schilling.
